Python: Iterate a given list cyclically on specific index position

Python List: Exercise - 181 with Solution

Write a Python program to iterate a given list cyclically on specific index position.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def cyclically_iteration(lst,spec_index):
    result = []
    length = len(lst)
    for i in range(length):
        element_index = spec_index % length
        result.append(lst[element_index])
        spec_index += 1
    return result

chars = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h']
print("Original list:")
print(chars)
spec_index = 3
print("\nIterate the said  list cyclically on specific index position",spec_index,":")
print(cyclically_iteration(chars,spec_index))
spec_index = 5
print("\nIterate the said  list cyclically on specific index position",spec_index,":")
print(cyclically_iteration(chars,spec_index))

Sample Output:

Original list:
['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h']

Iterate the said  list cyclically on specific index position 3 :
['d', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'a', 'b', 'c']

Iterate the said  list cyclically on specific index position 5 :
['f', 'g', 'h', 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e']

Big Number Readability:

you can separate zeros with underscore (_)

print(2_000_000)
print(2_000_000 +1)

Output:

2000000
